The position of the costa or elevated ridge of the disk of the carpels, in this and '
allied species, varies very much, being sometimes close to the margin, at other times
distant from it.

Very like the last, but the leaves are mtich more divided, and the flowers a good1
deal larger. "When earefolly examined in their native-country, connecting links will
probably be found. Both require comparison with R. repent, L., which is a widely
diffused plant, an4 varies very much.
